Microsoft says No Thanks to Motorola's settlement offer.

The patent violating court case between Microsoft and the Google-owned Motorola took another step up with Microsoft dismissing the settlement where Motorola “offered to pay Microsoft 33 cents for each Android phone using ActiveSync, which updates calendars automatically, and asked for a royalty of 2.25 per cent on each Xbox and 50 cents per copy of Windows for using its patents.”

Microsoft’s deputy general counsel Horacio Gutierrez had the following to say regarding the offer

“While we welcome any good faith settlement effort, it’s hard to apply that label to a demand that Microsoft pay royalties to Google far in excess of market rates, that refuses to license all the Microsoft patents infringed by Motorola, and that is promptly leaked to the press,”

Looks like we’re in for more crazy courtroom hijinks in the future….I cant wait to see what Motorola comes back with.
